Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Tuesday Tutorial - Swirling Grace

Hi Everybody,

This beautiful die is from the designs by Becca Feeken and is available with Spellbinders.
 It is part of a collection that Becca created to cover the wedding themes and they are all beautiful graceful swirling  dies. 

Spellbinders Supplies:
Other Supplies:

With die #7 from Matting Basics A cut two pieces in cream and create a hinged card
Please remember that with Spellbinders die #1 is always the smallest
Hand cut another layer in turquoise slightly smaller than the base
Hand cut another layer in parchment that is the same size as the turquoise one and emboss this layer
Cut one panel in turquoise using the outer frame of Swirling Grace
Then with the two dies together cut another panel in cream and glue these two together.
Add foam pads to the back of the turquoise card
With the other two parts to the die set cut one of each and I decided to use the cream card for both of these.
With the border sentiment cut your chosen word four times and glue them together for extra strength

Assemble the card and add in some flowers along the bottom.
I used a decorative hatpin in the display and sparkled my flowers with glitter.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
